What are EarSeeds?The basics
The ear is a microsystem of the entire body.

Worn for 2-5 days at a time, all ear seeds work on the same principle of providing acupressure on specific ear points.

They are created by licensed acupuncturist and Auriculotherapy expert and teacher, Elie Goldschmidt, L.Ac.. Additionally, some of the charts are created in conjunction with acupuncturist specialists in their respective fields.
